Now that my kids have grown into adult bodies, I can’t find my socks because I keep seeing them on my kids feet :). This makes me smile for lots of reasons: their socks don’t match, my men randomly wear flower socks & socks sizes are irrelevant.
So our feet are important because they help us walk, they’re the base on which we stand, we use them for beat tapping, kicking, hacky sack, ballet, skiing & loads more!
Let’s invite God to guide our feet, our steps & direction!
And a helpful prayer:
Ps 40:2, “You brought me up out of the pit of destruction & miry clay; You set my feet upon a rock, making my footsteps firm.”
The story of Lazarus has a lot to do with resurrection. Lazarus was a really sick dude (infirm as opposed to cool) who had an inside track with Jesus. Despite being a person whom Jesus loved, Lazarus died largely because Jesus procrastinated, if that’s ever really possible in a divine context. So when Jesus finally showed up, Lazarus was already dead for 4days & his body was very ripe – ripe for resurrection rather than decay.
Long story short, Jesus called Lazarus back to life & told them to remove the grave clothes that bound Lazarus’ hands & feet & covered his face.
I believe that Jesus has resurrection for each of us, but sometimes we let our hands, feet & face stay bound in the clothing of death. Let Jesus set free:
*your hands free to do His work
*your feet with walk in His steps
*your face so you can reflect Jesus’ life in our decaying world, desperate for resurrection
Let’s be alive in this day with Jesus’ presence wherever we go & in whatever we do!
